Presidents Message

Well, seems summer is winding down, the kids have headed back to school, but the fishing should be heating up just like our chapter activities. Being on the waters of the Bay the last couple of weekends, the crabbing has improved, bait seems to be balling up in the rivers and breaking fish have been all over. It would be a great time to gather up some friends, grab your tackle (trolling & Light) and spend a few hours enjoying the beautiful resource we have at our heels. Oh Yeah, don’t forget the beer!

As far as the chapter is concerned, quite a few things are on the near horizon, which represent what a fine chapter with a lot of activities we have. First, we have our annual fundraiser drawing at our next meeting. So, please be sure to sell those last tickets you have, as, it helps support the outstanding events our chapter puts on for all members that choose to participate. Be sure to turn in the stubs and money to Bob Pellicot before the meeting starts so we can pick the lucky winner during our normal monthly raffles.

Again, be reminded that our Crab Feast is on Saturday, September 13 at the Urbana Park, Pavilion # 1 starting at 1:00pm. If you’ve sold your ten tickets, be sure to get your free entry ticket from Bob at the meeting. If not, tickets will be available for $35 at the meeting and there will be NO ticket sales the day of the event.

This is the last meeting to sign up for our annual “Tackle the Mackerel” tournament or to order T-Shirts and/or Sweatshirts. The order goes in on Thursday after the meeting and no additional items will be available afterwards.

Plans and preparations have begun for our January 17, 2015 Expo. Fellas, this is a lot of work. We need some people to step up and help our. At the October meeting there will be sign up sheets for volunteering to again make this a huge success.
